Current Programme

As mentioned in previous posts we have a new term-time programme for our youth sessions, please see below.

Due to the unexpected increase in demand for places on the youth sessions and the limited staff capacity, can we ask that rather than just turning up to enrol your child onto a session you contact us first on 0191 2647566 or by e-mailing  to check availability. Thank you

Friday 3:15-5:15 is our After School Club

This session is for children aged up to six years old and who attend either West Denton Primary or St. John Vianny’s Primary schools. Staff collect the children directly from the teachers at the school and bring them to the centre for two hours of activity. As with the youth sessions, parents need to contact us first to check availability but also to sign a letter of consent to allow for the school to release their child into our care. Again the first session is free then there is a contribution of £1.50 per session thereafter, this includes the cost of supplying a healthy snack and refreshments.

The group take part in a range of talks and demonstrations on a range of subjects and topics delivered by guest speakers from a variety of backgrounds.
